  • You just canceled my reservation for your $278 room for 2 night stays on 12/18 and 12/19. Can you give me the reason why?

    We are complying with orders from Big Bear Lake city that we have to close down from December 14 through December 27. We are in San Bernadino County which has seen a spike in Covid cases and ICU beds are close to 7% (I think the number was 7.7%).
